The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution is the right to keep and bear arms. This means that under the Second Amendment, you can own a gun. If you are convicted of domestic violence, that right will be taken away and you will not be legally allowed to have a gun. I represent people who have been charged with domestic violence and are concerned about how this could affect their gun rights.
If you have been arrested on a domestic violence charge and are worried about how it could affect your rights to have a gun, talk with me, an Atlanta Second Amendment lawyer, about your rights and options. At the Schiffer Firm, L.L.C., in Atlanta, Georgia, I put in a lot of hands-on work to help my clients. I will also advise you on what you can and cannot do while a restraining order is in place.
Protect Your Right to Bear Arms
As your attorney, my goal is to dispose of your case without a conviction. I understand your concerns regarding gun ownership, and I will devote my time and resources to alleviating those concerns. Under federal law, penalties for domestic violence include being prohibited from:
- Possessing any firearm or ammunition
- Shipping or transporting any firearm or ammunition nationally or internationally
- Receiving any firearm or ammunition
Expunge a Domestic Violence Conviction From Your Criminal Record
You may qualify for an expungement, or record sealing. If you do have a domestic violence conviction on your record, you may be able to have that expunged. A successful expungement will restore gun ownership rights.
